These are the highest quality steel Razorbacks you will find anywhere. We cut them out of 1/8" thick (11 gauge) steel with our CNC plasma cutter, then we clean them by hand to remove all slag and burrs. The powdercoated version is baked here in our shop with the highest quality powdercoat available. The finish will last for many years outside, so feel free to mount these on a post or put them in your flower bed. Most customers are so impressed with the quality that they mount them in their living room or office, and in that environment, the finish will last forever. We make these in several sizes, so check out the other product listings if you want a larger or smaller size. They are listed separately to give you a more accurate shipping quote. The measurement in the title is from end to end. This one is the largest size we make and is the largest size that can be shipped via UPS (these cannot ship USPS). You can save a lot of money if you pick this up in person.
